TRUE NORWEGIAN BLACK METAL: We Turn in the Night Consumed by Fire

New York: Vice Books, 2009. First Edition. Hardcover. Photography by Peter Beste. Edited by Johan Kugelberg. Introduction by Jon “Metalion” Kristiansen. Brooklyn, New York: Vice Books, 2009. Third edition, limited to 4,000 copies. Over the course of eight years, Beste traveled to Norway thirteen times to photograph the blackest of the black: apolitical and anti-Christian separatist self-preservationists. He came away with more than 200 images of both the absurd and the deadly serious, real and fake blood, church crosses and inverted ones worn as the jewelry de rigeur, all set against the country’s idyllic landscape. This unprecedented photographic journey is accompanied by a black metal history timeline, from Norway’s conversion to Christianity to the arrival of every classic band and landmark album; additional photographs and articles from Norway’s Slayer Mag, and tabloid stories on some of the infamous events associated with the movement. Signed by Beste on the front flyleaf. Folio. Original pictorial boards; issued without a dust jacket. A fine copy. Fine. Item #64327
